Another good free program is Celestia.

More of a space tourist program. You can take a tour of the cosmos with it and check out all the planets & nebulae and such.

I can't believe I never posted World Wide Telescope, a freebie from Microsoft.

Since the Moon intrudes periodically on deep sky objects (DSOs), there's a decent freebie for Luna, Virtual Moon Atlas. I'm not a Moon fan, being inclined towards the DSOs (a/k/a, "Dim Fuzzies")

Since most interesting Lunar objects are in easy reach of 7x or larger binoculars, it can be fun to observe. The angle of the Sun on the lunar landscape effects a change every day.
